Richard C (Dick) Felton — Master Instructor

Dick Felton has run off and on all his life, however after getting serious at a later age - efficiency and injury prevention seemed like two things that would allow running to a ripe old age. His first course on Chi Running™ was taken in September of 2005 with instructor training in May of 2006. Certification followed in November 2006.
Dick states “Teaching the technique has not only helped the students I have had in my classes - it also clarifies the method for me each time I instruct. My own running has improved immensely using the Chi Running™ and Chi Walking™ technique”

Coaching:
I have helped people change their direction in life from both an exercise and eating perspective, plus
helped them attain their sport and life goals.
